Swedish Immersion

Some links to uploaded Immersion articles (SV to EN):

Need to be translated:

Translated ones, need to checked:


From English to Swedish: (thanks, PaoloLim!)


thecupcakefarmer's weekly article

The user thecupcakefarmer has started a weekly Swedish Immersion program, as you can see here. Once a new article is uploaded, the previous one will be removed.


I'll keep posting more articles, and will remove the ones that are completed (once they are). I believe davidvdb's "Immersion for all languages" post should be sticky, but I think Duolingo wouldn't allow that :P

If you have uploaded a document and would like it to be seen or checked by the community, you can give me the link either here in the comments or in my stream, and I'll be sure to include it.

Thank you very much!

How was this made?

This brilliant fellow coder found out a way to upload documents to Immersion for every language on Duolingo. But the coolest part is that this is not possible only for the currently available languages we have in the website, but other ones, such as Finnish and Icelandic :D

Awesome! Do you have the link for Ukrainian?

January 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

I guess no one has done a Ukrainian Immersion so far. I'll create some articles for it and post in the Ukrainian forum ;)

I've been away from Duo for a while. So happy to return and find that this is a thing. Swedish immersion is happening, people!

Unfortunately, we don't actually have Swedish Immersion yet. This is more of a loophole that was found, to upload articles in any language. But as some A/B tests are currently being ran, we Immersion might be removed completely from the website, even for the languages that have the tool currently.

I understand. It's still better than nothing :)

Thanks for this! I already translated some sentences.

I've translated a few of these. I am going to try uploading an article for Polish. :) One question: How big can the article be?

January 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

I believe the regular Immersion standards are applied here. I tried to upload the "Sverige" page in Swedish, but the system refused it because of its length. Thus I supppose small to medium texts are fine, which should be enough for the translation purpose.

January 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KarmaWeasel

So I got the part about uploading the article and then clicking inspect when it gives you no language options. But I'm stuck on what to put where in the code. Is it sv} for none? or none selected? Or both? I can't seem to get it to accept anything but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

January 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

Inside the <>, in the "None", you erase the None word and in the same place you write "en}" (without the quotes).

January 20, 2016

If 'sv' is for Swedish, what's the code for Norwegian course offered here? I tried typing 'no' but rather than the Norwegian flag, it was just the DL logo that appeared. I presume 'no' is not the code tied to the official DL course.

January 22, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

I'm pretty sure it's "nb", which stands for Norwegian Bokmål.

January 22, 2016

Unfortunately, I imagine it won't be long before Duolingo takes this capability away, once they realise that people are abusing the system to do things that (in their eyes) it "isn't supposed to". :(

January 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

Well, they already have plans to remove all the Immersion from the website. So how could just a glance at what Immersion could be one day harm? ;)

That's a sad new, it's quite the interesting and useful tool :/ Thanks for your work though

January 22, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PaoloLim

We wouldn't be talking about this if DL made this clearly popular feature available more widely in the first place. I mean it can put disclaimers and all of those things so that users won't see any contributions as 'official'.

January 22, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/d.m.gannon

Is there a way to see if anyone adds new articles to this?

January 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

Unfortunately, only if the person shares the links as I did

January 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Synthpopalooza

So here's an idea: Those of us who decide to upload new articles, could you put a link to them at the top? This can then become the official Swedish Immersion thread. :)

January 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

Great idea :) If anyone gives me links to other articles, I'll put them in the post, then.

January 20, 2016

Is there also like a counterpart of this 'unofficial' thread for Norwegian?

As britta222 mentioned some weeks ago, you can access the immersion area of any offical language-pair by the same two windows tweak with which the word lists get usable for languages which don't have a word tab. If someone has mentioned that before, excuse me. I did not read all the splittered posts. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11499802

new to Doulingo what is this immersion thing about? can I do it or do I need to be at a certain level?

January 21, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

Immersion has always been available for the original languages (ES, IT, DE, PT, FR), for any level. However people found a way to upload documents to any language, and I did for Swedish.

In Immersion you read an article in the target language, and you translate it. If you hover the words, the system gives you translations, although one should not rely only on them.

January 21, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PaoloLim

How do I suggest articles for translation to be displayed more prominently here?

January 22, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gabzerbinatoEng

You can either send me messages on my stream or write here any suggestions you have. Which articles do you think should be displayed more prominently?

EDIT: Now I see your articles ;) Thanks

The Ice Cream wikipedia has been finished (I did most of it) and can probably be listed now in the "needs to be checked" category.
